If I disable the SSID broadcast on my Linksys wireless router will that keep my Dell Axim from being able to connect to the network?

 

Thanks in advance,

Bryan

No, I disabled my SSID broadcast on my Dlink router and my laptop connects fine. When you are connected to your wireless network, go to network connections and right click on the wireless connection and select properties. Select the Wireless Networks tab and enter your SSID of you network where it says "Automatically connect to available networks in the order listed below."

 

Once you add your SSID to this list you can disable the SSID broadcast and your laptop will still be able to connect to the network because its SSID is in that list.
